I think my explanation was quite adequate and the words of our Lord backs it up



If by "explanation" you mean examples which show that it was common to say that a daytime or a night time would be involved with an event when no part of a daytime or no part of a night time could have occurred, I'm afraid I missed it.  I wonder if you might point out the number of the post where you did that?

Hi rstrats
What I gave you was

Quote
  Hi rstrats
Dose it matter if Christ says he would be in the grave 3 days and 3 nights then that's what happened.
Don't know if it helps but the Jewish day began at sundown so Christ was crucified in the light part of the day when the sun went down the 2nd day began he was in the tomb all that day and the next and rose up in the dark part of the following day so he was in the tomb 2 full days and 2 halve days total 3 days and three nights.

This is my explanation and it suits me fine as believers we should believe what our Lord tells us not try to disprove them

Love and Peace
Dave

How do you get 2 full days with a 6th day of the week burial/1st day of the week resurrection?

Hi rstrats
Thank you for your reply the words of our Lord Jesus Christ confirms it beyond doubt

    For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
Matthew 12:40 ESV

Jesus don't tell lies

Hi rstrats
Thank you for your reply but I have no intention of addressing this subject more than what I have.
If I have to prove the words of our Lord then it means I don't believe what my Lord has said which would make me an unbeliever.

Our Lord said

   For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
Matthew 12:40 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.12.40.ESV             


And there absolutely no doubt that this is what happened

Love and Peace
Dave

OK, for some reason I thought you were a believer in a 6th day of the week crucifixion. Apparently you're not.   Sorry.

But maybe someone new looking in may know of examples.

And again, that "someone new" needs to be someone who believes the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week with a 1st day of the week resurrection, and who thinks that the "heart of the earth" is referring exclusively to the tomb, and who tries to explain the lack of a 3rd night by saying that the Messiah was employing common figure of speech/colloquial language of the period; in other words that it was common to say that a daytime or a night time would be involved with an event when no part of a daytime or no part of a night time could occur.
